A cavalcade of spring hopefuls will contest Saturday’s Memsie Stakes, but punters have singled out Black Heart Bart as the horse to beat.
The Goodwood handicap winner opened favourite with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au and has continued to attract support. Black Heart Bart holds the bulk of money and is firm at $2.70.
Costly last start failure Mahuta still has his share of admirers evidenced by the four-year-old firming from $8.00 into $6.00. Palentino, a stablemate of Black Heart Bart and Mahuta, is also fancied, tightening from $7.00 into $6.50.
“It will be a case of Achy Breaky Heart if Black Heart Bart doesn’t salute on Saturday. Punters jumped aboard when the market opened, money continues to come for him and he holds 25 percent of wagers,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
